As a ministry, we believe in a core set of beliefs that have been clearly stated in scripture and that are essential to our faith and encouragement of local churches.

Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

We believe Scripture (the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments) is:

  • God’s complete revelation, inspired through the mouth of His prophets.

  • Authoritative in all it says, and sufficient for our lives.

  • Inerrant in the original writing.

The Nature of God (Matthew 28:19-20, John 1:1-4; Acts 5:3-4)

We believe God is the eternal, holy, Triune God – one nature, three persons – each person equally and fully divine. Each with distinct, but complimentary roles.

God the Father

  • Sovereign over His creation.

  • Sovereign over redemption.

God the Son (Jesus Christ)

  • Fully God and fully man.

  • Born of a virgin into this world.

  • Sinless and perfect.

  • Bore our sins once for all.

  • Died and Has Risen – conquering sin and death.

  • The Mediator between God and man.

God the Holy Spirit

  • Glorifies Jesus Christ in all He does.

  • Convicts us of sin, righteousness and judgment.

  • Sanctifies, seals and indwells believers.

  • Instructs, guides, and comforts.

  • Empowers and enables.

The Nature of Man (Genesis 3:1-6; Romans 3:10-19; Romans 1:18, 32)

  • Created in the image of God.

  • Fallen and depraved in Adam and by choice.

  • Alienated and separated from God by sin.

  • Unable in any fashion to save himself – utterly in need of salvation.

Salvation (Romans 8:37-39; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 12:13)

  • Only comes through the complete payment of our sins through the death,
    burial and resurrection of Jesus on our behalf.

  • Is by grace through faith in the finished work of Christ.

  • Through this we are declared righteous and adopted into God’s family,
    and in which our whole identity as believers lie.

The Church (Ephesians 1:22-23; Acts 2:42-46; 1 Corinthians 14:26; Matthew 28:18-20)

Through salvation we are placed into the Church, the body of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Head. The Church:

  • The church is the institution in which God works through today, and all aspects of discipleship, including biblical counseling, is a ministry of the local church, and should be viewed so.
